La Boqueria, Barcelona
(3.1/5 based on 12,000+ reviews on the web)
Take in the local culture by meandering through the throngs of people going about their daily business at La Boqueria, arguably the country’s best-known market. Noted for selling a wide range of local products, including fish, meat, vegetables, and fruit, the market has been open since 1836. It’s worth a visit just for the colors, smells, and sights of the fresh foodstuffs displayed and sold here. Friendly vendors can tell you exactly where and how their goods were grown, raised, or harvested. Avoid driving and arrive as early as possible to miss the crowds. If you can allow time, take a seat at one of the cafes and spend a few moments observing other travelers as they search for a little bit of something Spanish to take home with them. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to La Boqueria and many more Barcelona attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Barcelona itinerary planner.

  • It is a market with a variety of products, located in a very touristy area of the city where the transit of people given a twist in the market. There are very good quality products. Sure to give a return.

  • ... from your feelings ... and try something tasty to eat! Perhaps the only advice I would give is to not get caught just by the appearance because what is beautiful is not always so good. Not To Be Missed. Only quibble: closed on Sundays.

  • Ideal to visit at any time. Is can enjoy all type of products typical as hams, cheeses, olives, as well as sweet, fruit and vegetables. Many places offer options to taste at the moment as well as also as if we were buying at a normal pantry. There are also restaurants that offer excellent choices in fish but are not anything cheap.

  • Looking at the reviews over a year ago i believe the 'all you can eat' buffet options were not available. Went with some friends today just by casuality and we had the 10euro all you can eat salad, sea food, etc...it was worth it! Clean, nicely decorated, the host was very friendly (unlikely for spanish people) and overall it was a nice enviroment. Maybe they've changed administration or something..anyways i will definitely recommend it to anyone for a quick pit stop.
  • Tried it tonight. For Barcelona, they literally must've had to work hard to make it taste that bad. The worst food I've had in all of Spain. Save your twenty six euros and go anywhere else.
  • Like everybody said, avoid at all cost. I feel unfortunate that we stumbled upon this place on our first date of arrival. The food is terrible and overpriced.
  • Soggy and unfresh salad, expensive and not clean?!
  • Expensive, horrible food. the chicken with thympotato was a coalbricket, which has never seen any herbs. the chicken paella had 2,5 chicken pieces in it and was burned. The first real bad experience in Barcelona!!!
